Stephen and Jenny have arrived safely in Paris to celebrate their daughter’s wedding in two week’s time. Please pray for safe travels all round, for the happy couple, Alice and AJ, and a wonderful family time together.

Pray for the Mustard Seed coffee shop – progress is very slow, and there are frustrations with the lack of response from all sides. We really need the approval asap, to get things up and running for next year.

Continue to uphold Junette Levett and family in prayer after Max’s passing.

Please also remember those who are unwell, injured, finding things difficult as Christmas approaches.

Prayer for our Community

Social Justice Focus:  Faith and Climate Change

Creator God, this earth is miraculous and beautiful. Forgive our confusion and inaction as we confront the challenges of climate change.

In the light of your truth, seen so clearly in the life and teaching of Jesus, help us to re-examine ourselves and our lifestyle choices and see clearly the implications of how we live on all that sustains life on this earth.

May we follow your lead in caring for every aspect of this precious world, which you made, and love.

We pray for world leaders to find new, just and radical agreements that will protect our fragile world for future generations.

Throughout history you have moved people to do amazing things for the sake of their neighbours. Inspire us now to work together, as your people, to change priorities in the way we live, so that we build a fair and safe world for all your creation; a world where your will is done as it is in heaven.

Amen.                                                            Adapted from Churches Together in Britain and Ireland
